The simplest to look the soname of a library is:
strings <filename> | grep lib

If the sonames are different then no problem except we must ensure RPM
will not remove gtk-1.0 by using different names like gtk-beta.

Only problem will be when building gtk-based software: GTK-1.0 and
GTK-1.1 will have same include files.

Not into an RPM.  In a metapackage or provide a "load everything" feature.
Putting them into the same RPM, implies loading all each time one
component cchanges.  In addition they are not related.
